Marking a mammoth milestone was an Isle chapel over the weekend as it held a special birthday celebration.

Young and old alike flocked to Crowle Methodist Chapel after an invite went out to townsfolk to take part in the anniversary celebration on Sunday.

The venue was celebrating reaching its 110th birthday.

Included in the day’s events was an afternoon ‘Songs of Praise’ service with guest artistes, Gemma and Michael, with a programme of favourite hymns.

Visitors were then treated to complimentary refreshments including a slice of iced birthday cake made especially for the occasion.

The service was conducted by Minister, the Reverend Duncan MacBean.

Chapel spokesperson Roy Briggs said: “Our aim was to fill the place with 110 people to mark this memorable milestone.

“The fact that this historic building has played a significant role in the life of the local community for well over a century is well worth celebrating.

“It is part of Crowle’s heritage and we are determined to safeguard its future.”

The present building was completed in 1904 at a cost of £3,278.
